7 days into 2013 and I’m already behind on my blogging…First of all I would like to wish everyone that’s reading a Happy New Year! May your 2013 be all you hope it to be and more!
I was going to post photos of my Christmas outfit, on Boxing Day, but I had misplaced my camera and only just found it two days ago!
If you follow me on Twitter or instagram, you will know that I ordered a ‘Audrey’ style dress, to wear on Christmas day.
Ugh it looks like I have cankles! lol
The back…also the back of my new (the week before Christmas) hair cut.
Here is my manicure that I wore for NYE, sorry about the poor quality photo
The base colour is Chi Chi Salon Formula mini nail polish in ‘Cat Fight‘ and the top glitter coat is Savvy by DB nail polish in ‘Tropical Martini’
Oh and just in case you were wondering, the Champagne ‘glass’ is an acrylic silver glitter flecked champagne flute from Target (which I got on sale for $4 just before Christmas)
I don’t make new year’s resolutions any more, mainly because if I do make them, I end up failing by late January/early February. However, I will make some Blogging resolutions!
hopefully I won’t fail at them too!
- No matter how busy I get, post (or schedule) at least one post each week
- Post more Fashion related posts…for me, it’s been easier to post beauty or other ‘lifestyle’ posts. I admit that I have been a bit to lazy to go to the trouble of putting together the outfit, the makeup and setting my camera up on the Tripod, with the self timer!
- Post (and wear) more bolder makeup looks, I tend to play it safe with neutral eye makeup when I leave the house during the day.
Have you made any new year’s resolutions? Or if not for yourself, have you made blogging resolutions?
XO XO Evelyn
Love your dress! I never plan a Christmas Day outfit, maybe this year ill have to keep it in mind.
Thanks Clare! I normally don’t plan too far in advance, but the dress was too pretty to pass up! xo
What a fox! I am lusting after that dress now! Did you wear a petticoat or anything underneath to make it more fluffy?
Good luck with your blogging resolutions! Mine were to make sure my blog is super presentable (think photos – I want to be taken seriously!) and written well! 🙂
Hehe thanks. Yes, I got a black petticoat from ebay for $26! bargain! The dress is from ‘Tragic Beautiful’, they trade on ebay and from their own site. They sell some amazing clothes (pinup, rockabilly, 50s etc.) And the best thing is that it’s an Australian company!
Great blogging resolution! I’m hoping to get a new SLR camera at some point this year, my compact just doesn’t seem to cut it 🙁
You look gorgeous, Evelyn! I love the dress, it’s stunning, and especially so with the black petticoat underneath! Well done, I always hesitate to buy things online in case they don’t fit well.
Love the nails also, they are so pretty.
Here’s wishing us a wonderful 2013!
Thanks! I hardly buy anything online for that reason also, but dresses aren’t too bad and I know my measurements (roughly) so can judge it that way. I would never buy pants/shorts online though because sizes vary too much between different brands.
I was surprised at how well the rainbow glitter worked over the purple!
Yes, hopefully 2013 will be a great year for us both!! xo
